On the 18th of November, 2023, Sebastian held a talk about his game development story, Fire Totem Games, A Webbing Journey, and the Austrian game development scene at the first Austrian Game Dev Night in Warsaw.

Benjamin Hanussek, a Game Studies and Engineering alumni, initialized the idea for the event. Frederic Schulte organized it from the Austrian Cultural Forum Warsaw and the PJAIT Game Lab, which Benjamin leads.

The event took place in the Austrian Cultural Forum in Warsaw, and visitors were able to play A Webbing Journey and Primal Fray, a game developed by Tymoteusz Pietruszka, a Polish game developer, during the day. In the evening, Sebastian held his talk, followed by a Q&A session and ended with many valuable new connections to the Polish game development scene. The event was a big success and laid the foundation for future Austrian Game Dev Nights.



On Friday and Saturday (March 10 and March 11, 2023), Sebastian Uitz presented his game “A Webbing Journey” with his partner Michael Steinkellner and Noel Treese at the Button Festival at the Messe Graz. Their booth consisted of 2 PC, a Steam Deck and a Nintendo Switch, all running the game. This was the first time the two handheld devices were used at an event, and people loved playing on them. The Nintendo Switch was a fan favourite for all the kids. The older players tended to the Steam Deck because it’s still a new console, and most of them had never had the chance to play on it before. Similar to other events, a lot of feedback in the form of new ideas for quests and possibilities to extend the game were gathered, which will be implemented in the following weeks and months, ready for the next event in May.

The first face-to-face ADAPT Meeting took place on September 30, 2021, in Klagenfurt. The consortium discussed important aspects of systems integration, current achievements and listed down strategies for validating and exploiting ADAPT use cases through real-world testing and external collaboration. The consortium further agreed to continue its ongoing efforts in disseminating scientific and technical results.

ARTICONF impressed the reviewers with their advancements in the second year and passed the second EC review with flying colors.  The project officer and reviewers echoed the effort put together by the consortium in achieving an integrated ARTICONF product while maintaining a pile of scientific output at the highest level. The EC reviewers iterated that they look forward to the current ARTICONF technology with personal and professional interests apart from the bindings of their current EC responsibilities. 

This offer is an excellent opportunity to do a combined PhD at CERN and the University of Klagenfurt. If you are interested, find more information here.
